It all started with a gift...
For FeatureMe co-founder, Taylor, birthdays mean everything. She considers her own birthday a holiday only topped by Christmas. So her partner, Brandon, faces a certain amount of pressure to create a memorable day.
One year, while Taylor faced a demanding college and work schedule, Brandon decided to celebrate her birthday a bit differently. Instead of buying a utilitarian gift that wasn’t all that fun, or a fun gift she’d soon forget about, he wanted to celebrate Taylor as a person. So he wrote a story.
He wrote the story like Taylor had been featured in a newspaper article celebrating her awesome adventures and accomplishments. He included a fake headline and Taylor’s favorite photographs of herself.
When Taylor read the story for the first time tears filled her eyes. She felt important. She felt loved.
She wanted everyone to experience that feeling.
A few years, and a college graduation later, FeatureMe the business was born.
And Taylor and Brandon haven’t forgotten their roots — everyday they stick to their mission of creating a gift far more meaningful than any other: a gift that spreads love.
